Ok here is a problem a friend of mine has with his 1800 wing,,there is a short blast of 5 beeps going off every 5 mins when he is driving the bike ,,the same beep you get when you press a button on the radio ,,He has already checked for a stuck button ,,,It is a european spec without a cb,,,It started about a week ago and it was only now and again ,but now it is every 5 mins ,,and no it is not an alarm clock:):)any ideas would be welcome..Cheers Ciaran

Ciaran, you can turn the audio beep off permanently by pushing the mode (right side)knob 5 times, then turning it to either have the beep on or off. This is for a US model with no CB, I'm guessing it's the same for the UK models.

Hey wexman :leprechaun:This is a new system that Honda has installed on the:18red:

When the rider hears these 5 beeps :whip: that indicates that his frame is cracked :crying:and his :18red:will be recalled A.S.A.P.

No Redwing, I think you got it wrong, it's the new factory installed Deer Alert System.:D

Is the auto-volume control (AVC) turned on? If the beep is turned on as well I think you get the beeps while the avc is working. I'm not 100% sure of this as my beep is always off, but one of you can easily check this.

That's a new problem to me Ciaran. I've scoured all teh gl1800 forums and not a single post about it, the closest is those with CB beep issues. Yellowwings suggetion makes sense, let us know what happens.

*sigh* wish I had an 1800...

I have a once-in-a-while beep as well on my '85 1200a when I turn off the bike. I've noticed that the horn emits a short bleat like I've just stuttered on the horn button. Also, my radio is starting to change stations when I switch the bike back on. Methinks I smell a gremlin...

Hey wexman :waving:It's no bloody wonder it was beeping :realshocked: that could have caused the frame to crack, and the :18red:recalled.
